Interstate Removalists: Moving Interstate to Melbourne

Ah, Melbourne. Huge multi cultural diversity, the romance and mystique of the trams, the Shrine of Remembrance and of course the home of AFL football.

Melbourne houses one of the greatest regions of population diversity in Australia. People from all walks of life call Melbourne home, and in turn, Melbourne welcomes them all with open arms. The diversity of populace is further enhanced by the complexity of houses of worship for the numerous religions.

Who could not be taken in by the romance of the trams? Like some style of relic from a bygone era, the trams silently click clack along the streets carrying thousands of commuters and tourists daily.

We normally consider public transport as a means to an end, however, Melbourne provides, free of charge between 10 am and 6.00pm, the city circle tram. Travelling through the city centre and Docklands, the tram provides an audio commentary of some iconic attractions including Princess Theatre, Parliament House, Federation Square, Docklands & Etihad Stadiums and the City Museum. The City Circle tram runs in conjunction with other trams in the city, and you can very simply move from tram to tram to suit your tourist destination.

The Shrine of Remembrance is situated alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens. Along Anzac Avenue, following the path which leads to the stories of bravery & courage displayed by Australian and New Zealand soldiers. Climbing out of the Shrine of Remembrance you are met with amazing views of Melbourne city.

And of course, the AFL football. Who could even think of Melbourne without including AFL. Parochial fans will go to great lengths to ensure their team is the best in the competition. Since 1987 when the VFL was expanded to include interstate teams (initially Western Australia), the national competition has seen dramatic changes to the old VFL competition with interstate teams regularly taking the prize (Premiership) at the end of the season.

This is only a small sample of the many amazing sights and scenery awaiting you in Melbourne. Be prepared to be amazed by the array of sights and scenery presented for all to view.

Choosing Interstate Removalists

As with any removal, choosing the right interstate removalists to handle and look after your valuable items is absolutely critical.

Here are six points which you should be comfortable with before you make this decision.

    1. Experience. Are they experienced at interstate removal?
    2. Experience. Are they experienced with Sydney removal?
    3. Insurance. Are they fully insured?
    4. Can they fit into your timeline?
    5. Are you comfortable with the how they deal with you?
    6. NEVER make this important decision based on price alone.


As your furniture and goods will be traveling extended distances to arrive in Melbourne, good packing becomes even more important. You may choose to pack yourself (which will obviously be cheaper) but you will need to ensure that you use removal cartons only and that all breakable items are wrapped in paper to protect them.

Interstate removalists rely heavily on the ability of the packers and need to be comfortable to stack cartons up to five high, or use them as building blocks in the load. A brief rule of thumb is that the average house will have one “fragile” carton only.

Otherwise, the professional team at South West Removals can pack for you.

Do I need to take this furniture?

Interstate removal to Melbourne can be expensive, therefore it can present the ideal time to take a serious look at what you are planning to take. Culling old or unwanted furniture can not only save you money on your removal but can also generate additional cash to spend during your relocation.

Vehicle transport
Driving across Australia can be a long, dull and boring task. Apart from kangaroos and camels trying to get into your car via the radiator, there are also the problems with fatigue and accommodation along the way. South West Removals & Storage can arrange your vehicle transport with professional car carriers who can either do a door to door service or collect your car from a pre-arranged address and deliver to wherever you desire.
Quarantine laws
Australia has some of the strictest quarantine laws in the world, and these apply when moving interstate to Adelaide. We recommend leaving behind things like plants, animal products and agricultural equipment which may contain contaminants and soil. For more information on the rules and regulations of each state, check out the Australian Government’s interstate quarantine website.
